Valentine's Day Cheese and Charcuterie Board

Valentine's Day Cheese and Charcuterie Board

Grazing boards are still as popular as ever!  I've seen (and made myself) quite a few variations on the classic cheese and charcuterie boards - I've made  vegetables grazing boards , chocolate grazing boards , brunch boards , and even a Taco Board ! But the classic, savory cheese and charcuterie is what my family likes best. So for this Valentine's Day, I lovingly put together a "pretty in pink " (and red 😁) cheese and charcuterie board filled with yummy treats to celebrate love day at home!

This year, for the first time ever, I decided to decorate my studio mantel for Valentine's Day! For the wall above the mantel, I had the idea to make a large balloon heart structure that would also double as a photo-booth backdrop. These balloon structures have been trending on the party scene and Pinterest for a few years, and this was the perfect opportunity to have a go at making my own!

Pink Champagne Jello Recipe

Pink Champagne Jello Recipe

As part of my Valentine's Dinner party menu that I shared in my previous post ( here ) ; I'm serving pink champagne jello with red berries and cream . Something about jello that evokes 'fun', don't you think? Maybe it's because it's a dessert we associate with kids, and therefore takes us back to our childhood days.  But for a grown-up update on this favorite classic, I added pink champagne and red berries. Which makes a super tasty, not to mention pretty in pink dessert for Valentine's Day ! :)
